Let’s talk about youtube monetization first. A channel is reviewed for the monetization program once it crosses 4000 watch hours in the previous 12 months and has 1000 subscribers. You’ll start to earn money for every view you get on your videos after your channel is approved for the Youtube Partners Program.
You can upload any original content like let’s play footages, game reviews, live streams, in-depth content on any game, unboxing and many other videos of different formats.

You can use Open Broadcaster Software to stream from your pc. And it’s free.

Download the Youtube Gaming App from Google Play Store.
Open up the app and click on the stream button which is to the left of the search button and your profile picture.
Note: You need to have a Google Account to use the Youtube Gaming App. You’ll need to verify your account with a phone number before you start streaming. The phone number you will provide will receive an OTP, verify your phone number by entering the OTP into the verification field. Once you are sucessfully verified , you will allowed to stream within a few moments time.

Select the app you want to stream, in my case I streamed PUBG mobile.
Next you’ll be prompted to enter the name of your live stream and description for your live stream. Enter a suitable name and description and hit continue.
Once you hit next the game will start and you will have the option to start the live stream. You can also enable/disable front camera to capture your face. Before going live don’t forget to share the stream link with your friends.
Ways To Earn Money Other Than Youtube Monetization
If you ever see a live stream, you’ll see that most of the streamers earn money through Youtube Superchat. Youtube Superchat allows viewers to pin their message in the live chat for a specific amount of time by paying money. I have also seen people taking donations via Paypal or Paytm. You can enable youtube superchat once you cross 1000 subscribers. Youtube has also launched a join feature. Your fans can help you by joining your community for a fee.
